Giants right-hander Trevor Gott has cleared waivers and been outrighted to the team’s alternate site, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group tweets. Gott had been in limbo since the Giants designated him for assignment last Tuesday.
This is the second time since February the Giants have outrighted Gott, whom they relied on somewhat heavily as recently as 2019. That season, his first as a Giant, Gott threw 52 2/3 innings of 4.44 ERA/3.73 SIERA ball with a 26.6 percent strikeout rate and a 7.9 percent walk rate.
Gott was unable to build on his 2019 success last season, when he dealt with elbow troubles and tossed just 11 2/3 frames. While the 28-year-old did average an imposing 95.5 mph on his fastball, opposing offenses still smacked him around for 13 earned runs on 13 hits (including seven homers) and eight walks.
